This is a small side table based on my Curved side table in an earlier post. This is a purpose build small table. Our living room is very small and we needed just a small table to hold a coffee cup and a remote. I loved the leg design of the Curved side table so much that I decided to use it again.

This was made from some scrap walnut I had laying around with a polyurethane water based finish. My son calls it the spider table because he thinks the legs make it look like a spider.

The legs on both of your tables make them look very animated… as if the tables are tip toeing away. Very original. Great work sricks.

Very unique design well worth repeating. Your son is right. But it works so keep it up. I really think your’re on to something. Maybe a patent.

I too think it is a unique design. It has a strong stand alone character all its own. Thanks for sharing.

Unique , yes . It just doesn’t appear to be a very stable table . It looks like it could tip over with a slight nudge , but I may be wrong . I do like it so don’t get me wrong . I’m just offering my opinion . Nice finish on it also : )
